  • Alcatel-Lucent CEO: EU regulations harm telecom innovation

If you look to why it is that the U.S. is so much [more] ahead than Europe, it's because of the business environment and what you're allowed to do because this is a regulated business. The situation in Europe is very unfortunate," Verwaayen said in an interview. CNBC (12/27) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
